    As in its to damn quiet in here. Who's getting' their junk out to the track soon? Who's waiting to the last minute, besides Jeff?

    We're going to Famoso a week from Sat. As we have no other choice.

    Gonna try to get back to Topeka baseline and then try to actually improve.

    In April we'll do it again except the plan is to drive it pulling the DW trailer to see if the whole mess will actually stay together.

    Co-pilot wants it to organized and tested, what a concept.

            I will get my block and rotating assembly back from the machine shop today. I hope that I will have the engine together by the end of April but it could be the end of May. Then I will put a few miles on it and start strip testing to see what breaks.
            Why think when you can be doing something fruitful?

              I've been driving the Skylark lately. Two throttle body bolts came loose, heck of a whistle sucking air around the gasket =P I'm going to be driving it to Phoenix for Easter at the extended family's house. I tried installing cruise control on it last weekend, but have interference issues with the throttle cable bracket and/or fuel rail cross over line on getting the vacuum actuator hooked to the throttle I'm likely going to be painting the car in June, might get all the chrome re-done at the same time. Engine wise, I'm right on the edge of ordering an MSIII upgrade for the car. Pending that I may try and get the car on a chassis dyno....
              Escaped on a technicality.
